It’s cute, festive, and will make anyone super grateful they chose to show up to whatever 4th of July shindig you decided to bring these to.
3. 4th Of July Firecracker Pound Cake
I have never met anyone who doesn’t love a good pound cake. If you yourself happen to know someone who does, well then this is the pound cake you need in order to convert him to the good side. This wildly colorful pound cake is one of those July fourth desserts that you don’t need to be to neat with in order to get a good decoration. In fact, the messier, the better. Just drizzle some red, white, and blue frosting on top and all around the ring and you have got yourself a fantastically flavored and amazingly looking pound cake you can certainly be proud of.
4. 4th Of July Jello Molds
Nothing says July fourth desserts better than a colorful and beautiful jello mold. This treat is remarkable easy to make and incredibly delicious. The best part? There’s not that many calories to it. This dessert was made so you could eat as much as you want of it and not worry about getting a stomach ache from all of the sugar. With this dessert, you can go to town and still have room for more!
5. 4th Of July Jello Shots
While some may not consider this a dessert, I certainly do. This concoction is beautifully simple to create and doesn’t take much time at all. It’s fun, easy, and packs a punch!
6. Red, White, And Blue Chocolate Covered Strawberries
Yup, another simple but effective dessert that isn’t all that bad for you! Strawberries are so sweet and delectable my mouth is watering just thinking about them. And if you add chocolate into the mix, you’ve got yourself a true wholesome dessert everyone will enjoy and thank you for.
7. Patriotic Cookie Cake
Cookie cake is one of those desserts that you can never go wrong with. And adding some red, white, and blue m&m’s to this dessert just makes it that much better.
8. American Pie
Do I have to say more? Pie is excellent, and whoever disagrees just hasn’t found the right kind of pie to try yet.
9. Fruit Sticks
While some people may not consider fruit a dessert, it can technically be qualified as one if you add in some marshmallows with them. Fruit is already sweet and juicy, and by eating it alongside a chewy marshmallow will truly make all of the difference when it comes to this July fourth dessert.
10. 4th Of July Rice Krispie Treats
This dessert is sweet, crunchy, and truly patriotic. Who doesn’t love rice krispie treats dipped in chocolate? No one, that’s who. And the best part about these July fourth desserts? They are super easy to make! Just dip your evenly cut treats in some colored chocolate! Simple enough, right?
11. Cake Pops
Cake pops are such a cute and fun dessert, so having them be 4th of July themed makes them that much better to eat! July fourth desserts are already exciting to look at, but nothing beats a cake pop when it comes to decorations.
12. American Flag Fruit Pizza
This is definitely my favorite dessert on this list. Fruit pizza is already my preferred treat of the day, but making it American flag themed is just too adorable and fun to pass up making when it comes to a 4th of July party.
13. Red, White, And Blue Popsicles
This might be the best treat to have when it comes to 4th of July. The weather in July is always hot, humid, and just plain uncomfortable sometimes. That’s why these frozen desserts are just the thing you need this holiday!
14. 4th Of July Pretzel Sticks
These crunchy and sweet desserts are so amazingly delicious you won’t want to stop eating them! Not to mention that are incredibly easy to create. Just grab some pretzels from your local super market, melt some white chocolate, dip your pretzels in, and drizzles some more colorful chocolate over them!
15. Red, White, And Blue Cake
This is where you can truly pull out all of the stops when it comes to creativity. While cake never fails to be delicious, going above and beyond to decorate it for 4th of July will truly make this holiday a special one you will always remember!
